Livestock transportation is no ordinary distribution and transport system.
Delivering a live cargo adds all sorts of extra logistical dimensions far beyond just getting the trucks on the road. And each of those dimensions brings an extra level of complexity to the transportation process, from animal welfare, stress reduction, and disease control to capacity restrictions and collection/delivery windows.
Transportation activities are costly in any industry and efficiency is always paramount. With livestock, however, the added dimensions of animal health and welfare make efficient planning and delivery even more challenging. The extra costs associated with things going wrong can be high.
Logistics planning for live cargo is also continuously in motion. When a breeder trades new livestock, for example, the collection and delivery cannot wait until there might be a truck available sometime next week. Adding another farm to the route at the last minute is a regular occurrence for many types of livestock and schedules can continue to change until the final delivery for the day is done. To keep costs down and welfare high, it is important to know immediately what the consequences of a planning change will be before it is implemented.
